Listen: Gemma Austin, Tara, Langham Hotel discussed on Ctrl Alt Delete
"Hello and welcome back to another episode of control obsolete. Today's guest is Gemma arson. I was very lucky to have a few minutes of Gemma's time on her press day. She did some radio interviews, things. She had some TV stuff, and then I napped some time for the podcast, which was very exciting. We recorded it at the Langham hotel, and we had a really good chats. The interview is primarily about the film that Gemma is releasing at the moment. It's out on the third of August in the UK, an island scored the escape. It's directed by Dominic savage and it's known as ING film. It's really hard to describe actually just because it isn't doesn't really sit and kind of one genre of film, but it's it's kind of like a very antics thriller comedy. It's amazing. It's sort of, well, it's one of my favorite types of films actually how it's a slice of life. You know, not a lot happens, but a lot happens. If you know what I mean, Artem plays Tara. A stay at home mother to living in Kent on her existence is kind of Solis even though on paper, she kind of has everything that she is supposed to want. She's got a nice husband. She's reasonably successful. She's got kids, she's got, you know, all right house and from the outside, she's kind of got a decent life. But the film really is about feeding suffocated feeding claustrophobic and feeling like it's too late to really do what you want to do with your life. So I think that's the themes in that are very relevant to lots of people. He might wanna go and watch it. It was really amazing talking to Jim about lots of different things we spoke about escaping we spoke about what happens if you don't express your creativity, what it's like, shooting a film when your hometown, they shot it in Gemma's a hometown, and even in her mom's house parts of it, we speak. We speak about unhappiness and and kind of what happens in women complain. We also talked about how gem. On social media has allows really interesting and also getting out of your comfort zone. So yeah, you enjoyed this episode. I really liked it. I'm really excited to share it with you and let me know in the comments or on I tunes if he liked it. Thanks so much for this thing here. It is. So I'm so excited to be here with Gemma Austin, the car to the play, Tara. The fact that the this on paper success that she has doesn't quite match up with how she feels on the inside. That's something that same many people that can relate to. I think. Do you think that is a bit of a symbol on where we are with so much outward success? I think, yeah, you're right. I mean, she is I, it's funny she has. She has a family to has a lovely home. It's not necessarily something she achieved for herself the home situation and she's a stay at home, mom. So husband does everything temps of bread-winning. And I think that she. Some one of the things I wanted to. I wanted to make a film about a woman that is essentially a creative person that never did anything about it. And what happens if you don't express your creativity and aside, I think that she if she had. The opportunity to when she was younger, maybe she would have moved to London done something else, but she didn't. She settled down young and she like a lot of people in them. We shall take my hometown and all of my friends growing up. They did that and and the very happy. But I thought about one if it was me, I think I would have been really unhappy and so, yeah, I think it does to this. It does to say that, you know it's a, it's okay. He she, she didn't feel satisfied. She did something about it does doesn't necessarily mean what she did was the right thing to do or the most, but she did something about it and and who doesn't. Sometimes just wake up thinking, imagine if I just laughed. Imagine if I just put my phone in the bin and went somewhere else. It's it's such an incredible topic to play with. Yeah, yeah. And, and interestingly, where I grew up great sand has these lost who has one of the stops on the EuroStar. And so there was always a gateway to Europe on my doorstep. Ken is such a weird and brilliant and old place in that the gateway to Europe.."
